The Southwest Washington Fair

We decided to take the trek down to where we used to live and hit the fair! Mostly we hung out at the animal barns (my favorite part) but I did let the girly go with friends to the rides after lunch. Logan and I ate fair food and walked through the booths while we waited for our thrill seeker to come back. I don't think there is anywhere else where you can buy lunch, chickens, quilts, and ammo all in the same place. lol! It wasn't too warm, so it wasn't too crowded, which was perfect for me.

I asked Cyan what her favorite part was when we were done, and as always, she loved the horse barns. This dark fellow above is named Rocket... he is a 21 year old gelding and was SO sweet! The kids stood with him for quite a while.

Logan liked petting the cows. I learned that there is a new raw milk dairy coming in down around Hwy 6 (which is RIGHT where I used to live). They were promoting their new location by giving out pencils with erasers that looked like ice cream cones. Logan loved that!

This was the biggest rooster I have ever seen. I'd be surprised if he was under 25lbs. He was HUGE! He was in a turkey cage and he nearly filled it. Amazing! (For reference, those are full sized hens behind him, each being between 7 - 11 lbs.)

Our county fair is coming up soon. I hate the rides and such but love the animals and exhibits. This is the first year the boys plan on entering a few things- pictures, decorations, etc. The cow picture of Logan is so sweet!

This is the first year we are entering things in the fair too! I am entering my blueberry jam, and I think Cyan is going to enter a drawing if I can find out how. They are making it hard to find the Jr section stuff this year.

GOOD LUCK!

Blessings,
